Keeping up with all of the new (mostly Asian) companies is a challenge. At one time Honda was a motorcycle, then a three-wheeled "car" and finally regular automobiles (but also excellent things like heavy machinery and small homeowner items like generators and lawn mowers). Sanyo, Samsung, they've all gone through an arc.

One company bound to be hit hard by the Trump idiocy is Vizio, a company in the US that orders devices, to spec, from various Chinese companies. They don't manufacture anything themselves, but they created a list of features they wanted their devices to have and they turn out to be very good devices.

I have a whole bunch of early electronics from my father's collection, I haven't had the heart to sell them but I suppose I should. Lots of Sony, and some other high-end manufacturers. Recorders and microphones, etc.
